Third round pick (which then was traded to the Steelers for Martavius Bryant, WR), and a fifth round pick.

 

edit mistake: Arizona dealt its first round pick (15th overall) third round pick (79th overall) and fifth round pick (152nd) in the trade.

We traded 75 for Bryant.

So after all of the talk of Jon Gruden hating analytics, he drafts the player who analytics say was the best OT in the draft. Funny how the video compares him to Veldheer. Who was the head coach that drafted Veldheer? Tom Cable.

Overreactions aside, I think OT was simply too big of a need to pass up. The position is really thin this year, so let’s hope that this wasn’t as big of a reach as some people are making it out to be.

I hope they know what they are doing. Been fearing this for weeks. I do agree it was a position of need  but prob too early. Hopefully cable can coach him up but I’m doubtful. That coin flip killed us.

No. Keep in in the trade thread.

How can RM sit there and smile?  I don’t like him or Gruden right now.  No way Miller was #1 on their board.  They reached for need and we need D just as bad I’d not more than OT.

Anyone else think that Gruden is calling all the shots? This smells like a Reggie pick through and through.

I think they have both taken too many shots.  One of them needs to stay sober tomorrow because today is going to cause some hangover.
